Schedule A Visit/Contact the Admissions Office

Campus visits: The visit and tour consist of a discussion/presentation on the Academy led by the Admissions Office, a Q & A session followed by a walking tour of the ship and campus. If scheduling permits, the tour will be led by cadets. We recommend reserving your spot in advance, as we only schedule small groups. Recommended dates below:

Mid May – July (exact dates TBD):

  • The Training Ship State of Michigan will be sailing with our first year cadets. Prospective cadets are invited to tour the ship while it is in a port near you (visit our calendar page to view entire itinerary), but please contact us in advance to make arrangements.
  • Families may also be interested in attending the annual Captains Dinner (March 1, 2019). The cadets plan and execute this fundraiser to support their cadet club activities. The event includes a dinner, silent auction and walking tours of the ship and academy (this event does require the purchase of a ticket). You may schedule your official visit earlier that same day.

August – May:

  • Fridays - 0900 or 1300
  • Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
